Is it your choice to live where you are now or where do you want to live? Why?

Tell me where you live and where you would want to live and why? Do you think the grass is greener somewhere else? Do you want to run away from friends or family? Job opprotunity? School? I live in Colorado, but I was raised in Connecticut. I love Colorado.

I love Arizona. I live way out in the desert. It is awesome. Hardly people around. Mostly wild donkeys, wild horses and steer, and cyottes. It's awesome. My siste lives in CO.Springs. She loves it there. I was there, it is beautiful too.

I live in Florida and I hate it. I had to move here as a teen because my parents did. However most of the time once here you can't get out. You can't make enough. So unless you have a job that will relocate you you're stuck. I would love to live someplace with mountains and change of seasons. I miss the snow and the fall leaves. Fake snow on a palm tree just doesn't cut it.

It is my choice to live where I do now. I lived in Nashville for 20 years and had good jobs there. Everything in my life and family sort of fell apart, my husband went on disability, my dad, sister, and niece all passed away and we inherited a house that was paid for in Camden. It is a small town but I live close to my family now and I have a job writing for a local paper. I enjoy my work even if it does not pay as well as I like. I am getting experience in writing so I can start branching out to freelance jobs. I have learned that money is not the most important thing in life. Now my three dogs (children) have a fenced in back yard to run and play in but they are tempermental. If it is too hot, too cold, or raining they want to stay indoors but that is ok too.

I moved from the midwest to california. Mostly due to job opportunities, entertainment, and what not. It is beautiful here. Well some places. And so much to do. Especially the music scene. I wouldnt consider going anywhere else.

I live in NY, not far from Albany. If I could live anywhere it would be in Tucosn, AZ. Tucson is the most beautiful place I've ever lived. It is so inspirational to look out the window in the morning and see the mountains. I live here because I moved here to get married. Not the brightest thing I ever did. But I'm here for now anyhow.

I was born and studied in one place and service in another place and settled in yet another place. At present, I am living with my wife,children and grand children in Bangalore City, India. I have settled finally in Bangalore. Because, I am retired from service and my children are working here. I have no other alternative except to live along with my children. I cannot run away from friends and family.The place where Iam staying with my family is a big city having all the modern facilities. Bangalore is also called as 'Silicon City'.I too love my beloved city 'Bangalore.'

This is not my choice now. I moved here from Florida to help my Mother with her husband (step-father) who had Alzheimers disease. I decided to go to college back here in my hometown and move when I graduated. I am still here now taking care of my Mother who is elderly and needs my help. So I will stay here until her final days. Then I will move to where I want to live which right now is back to Florida or it may be Holland after I visit there this summer.

I have always thought the grass was always greener, and i visited down south for a few weeks once and it was exactly how I imagined it!lol..And to this day I want to live there,BUT..theer are too many obsticles in my way.,.Like my family, I would literally die without being close to my family,I see them several times a week and i love them so much i cant imagione my life without them,and the same goes for my close friends,I need them, now i know i could visit up here and all,but being disabled its not such a good option, and i rely on them to help me once on awhile..but someday..I will live in Louisinna..thats where my heart is,.
